The first of what organizers hope will be a seasonal event at Sullys Hill was held this weekend - the Sullys Hill Family Nature Festival.

According to preserve manager, Tom Ibsen, to truly appreciate everything Sullys Hill has to offer, you need to experience it in all its glory and in all four seasons; summer, fall, winter and spring. Each season brings unique beauty and experience of the animals that call the preserve home, Ibsen said.

On Saturday between the hours of noon and 9 p.m. over 100 people enjoyed the many outdoor stations manned by ND Fish and Wildlife personnel and other volunteers which featured face painting, hair beading, tree climbing, soap carving, casting, animal furs and antlers and so on.
